John Sandilands

How would you describe them?

“John James Whyte Sandilands, known as Johnny or Sandy to his many friends. Notorious for a canny smile, twinkling eye and quick sense of humour.”

What did they love most?

“He loved socialising, flirting and dancing, when he was fit enough to; but sitting in a sunny place takes the top spot for what he loved the most.”

What will you remember most about them?

“Greatly loved by friends and family both at home and abroad, he was always able to present a socially educated view and opinion on any subject.”

Mr Andrew Dent

The Sly, Wiley fox, with devil glint of mischief in his eyes, the swagger of confidence that showed no weakness, the soft Scottish tones of charm flowing to entice 'burds' from the... from anywhere, a presence that you could not help but be encapsulated by, the magic of Sandilands for all to feel. The man that taught and instilled so much in me. The man who enriched so many a yarn and tale to tell for his legacy to enjoy. The man I am proud to say will always be my Grandfather aka Grumpy. All my love Andrew xxx

My fondest memories of my Grampy were the times we all spent together at the home he shared with our beloved Gran in North Devon. We spent many a happy time playing in their wonderful gardens and pool with our cousins in tow. He always got the biggest kick out of scaring the pants of us by either telling us chilling stories, showing us his blackened toe nails or surprising us with his false teeth. You never knew where you were going to find them even wrapped up as xmas presents!
